    FX HO speeds and rpms

    I just bought a 06 crusier FXHO and I am not sure what they run completely stock. Mine only ran 57.9 mph @10000 rpms. Is this close to normal or did I get a slow one.

    Hypertoys,

    I bought one new in o4 and put 130 hrs on it in 10 months.


    Put the riva kit on it and every thing made it go faster except the sponsons. I bought it in March and the heat had not come in yet. I think it went 59 stock and between 63.5 and 65.0 was my fastest.

    Best Rough water ski I ever had. Of course now triples go 80 plus in the chop and singles go 76 plus in the chop. Except for yours.

    Gas mileage and comfort can not be beat.

    05 ho cruiser stock mine about 59ish
    riva intake kit with filter and stacks and free flow exhaust kit riva
    blue printed prop clearance down to .25mm clearance ( so he said) all I can say after got the prop done fixed up heaps of hole shot cavitation and got 63/64 depending on fuel load and water never ride on glass so maybe had 1-2 more in there some where !!!!

    but fully agree they are the best alround ski

    nothing comes close for rough water ridability ( just lack some mumbo)

    presto they make the SHO mmmmmmmm

    cant wait to ride one

    was that GPS speed or dream meter?

    Hypertoys,

    I have ride plate, air filter, intake grate, Sponson backing plates, pump seal kit. Every thing except sponsons, which are same as gpr, and velosity stacks which are on my Gpr.

    You can use them if you like.

    We better start the bidding now, because neither you nor your gf will ride a 58mph ski.
